UniProtKB description:  Transporter of a GTP-driven Fe(2+) uptake system, probably couples GTP-binding to channel opening and Fe(2+) uptake (PubMed:12446835, PubMed:19629046). A guanine nucleotide-binding protein (G proteins) in which the guanine nucleotide binding site alternates between an active, GTP-bound state and an inactive, GDP-bound state. This protein has fast intrinsic GDP release, mediated by the G5 loop (about residues 149-158). Presumably GTP hydrolysis leads to conformational changes and channel closing (PubMed:19629046). A GDP release mechanism involving a conformational change of the G5 loop (and thus the removal of the nucleotide-binding and stabilizing interactions) would significantly reduce the affinity for GDP, and conceivably be sufficient for catalysing nucleotide release (PubMed:25374115).
